thwarted over the last ten years under president bush and under president obama where our intelligence community has saved lives and kept people out of harm's way. there's been a few misses like boston or benghazi where things we should have known or should have done, we made huge mistakes in benghazi when it came to protecting our ambassador and the consulate. but in the grand scheme of things with regard to the things we've been able to do in the intelligence world in stopping threats, it's been very successful. >> so you brought up benghazi. do you think that's why we're so proactive in getting this resolves right now? they could afear to be soft targets to al qaeda operatives. >> i hope it's part of the reason. like i said before, this threat is much more specific than anything we had going into benghazi. benghazi, we should have known because it was the anniversary of 9/11 and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that an embassy in benghazi is the day that the bad guys like to take a pop shot at us. that was a no-brainer and we left our ambassador vulnerable in my opinion. t

president obama, had been right the first time. the threat is alive and well, which sensible people knew all along. the scary parts aren't really the threats, but that officials say our response to the threat is a lesson learned from benghazi. the lesson is close up shop because we can't protect you. that's no lesson. either you bolster security or get the hell out of the hell holes, but you don't close up shop because sooner or later the sign in the door will go from closed to open and evil will return and it won't be there asking for directions. so kimberly, feeling delightful in green, they're closed until next saturday. at some point they have to reopen. then what do you do? >> people feel insecure about the ability of the united states to protect them, as you say, close up shop, close for business until we can figure something out or the chatter stops. that's when you're at the most vulnerable, as soon as you open back up again, that's when you're going to get hit. there's been a little activity in terms of predator strikes but no major casualties from that of any of the known leaders.

, despite the tough rhetoric from the whourks president obama has still not announced a decision about what, if any, military action he's going to take against the syrian regime. i'm tucker in for sean. earlier today, the administration released part of an intelligence report and moments later, the president had this to say. >> as you've seen, today, we've released our unclassified assessment detailing with high confidence that the syrian regime carried out a chemical weapon that killed well over 1,000 people, including hundreds of children. this kind of attack threatens our national security interests by violating well established international laws against the use of chemical weapons by further threatening friends and allies of ours in the region like israel and turkey and jordan. and it increases the risk that chemical weapons will be used in the future and fall into the hands of terrorists who might use them against us. so, i have said before and i meant what i said, that the world has an obligation to make sure that we maintain the norm against the use of chemical weapons. now, i have

't believe in what he is leading. >> i have no problem with president obama, if he likes to wear the helmet, ride the bike in martha's vineyard, that's fine. he evacuated 22 embassies friday, spent the weekend playing, his own words, i golfed, played basketball, took pictures with friends in the oval office, blew out candles. >> how about issue a statement or have a press conference, act like you're responsible, that you're not auditioning to play commander in chief in hollywood but you want the job and are serious about terror. this is nothing new to me. this is a president that doesn't have the stomach for terror. if the reports are correct, it was clinton and panetta told him to put the thing on bin laden. i don't think it is a priority. i think he should move the white house to california capital hollywood. >> i think that's disrespectful to the family and soldiers serving overseas, to families of people protecting the embassies closed down. for the president not to be in the oval office and making national security a priority, but instead he is more concerned about his own birthday par
. >> we start this hour with a fox news alert. less than two hours away from president obama's first formal solo news conference since april, a look for you in the white house. reporters expected to pepper him with questions about his decision not to meet with russian president vladimar putin and the administration's continued use of the controversial talking point. i am jamie colby. >> and i am greg jarret. >> they are focusing on law makers wasting time and attention on phony scandal instead of the people's work. >> to often over the past two years, washington took its eye off of the ball. they have allowed political postural and phony scandal to distract from our economy and growing middle-class. >> fox news poll find that people do not agree with the president. the interest in the benghazi terrorist attack is anything but phony and not phony to voters, nsa snooping on americans. and the justice department seizing telephone records and irs targeting conservative groups for extra scrutiny. host of power play on fox news live. chris, you have written your insightful and provocative
. then senator obama answered that question by saying, the president does not have power under the constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation. i pressed jay carney on that point today in the daily briefing and also, meanwhile, republicans like john mccain tonight are saying, if there is going to be military action, it cannot be a symbolic action, backing up the president's rhetoric about a red line, it's got to be serious action that decimates assad's military. take a listen. >> do you believe that exists right now? >> i believe it is a threat to the united states. i believe that absolutely allowing the use of chemical weapons on a significant scale to take place, without a response would present a significant challenge to -- a threat to the united states national security interests. >> if it's simply that we launch some cruise missiles and do that for three gayes and not have a significant effect on the momentum on the battlefield. it will have a -- an unhelpful effect. if we do it right, and
is it for this special report. >>> for the first time president obama says he will seek authorization from congress. he says the u.s. should take military action against the assad regime inside war didn't torn syria for using chemical weapons on its citizens but according to the president he will wait for congress to vote on the issue. the news coming fast tonight from around the globe as the world watches and waits for a positive u.s. strike. prez obama making his case for action in a statement today in the rose garden saying the deaths of innocent civilians at the hands of their government should not go unpunished. >> here's my question for every member of congress and every member of the global community. what message will we send if a dictator can gas hundreds of children to dmeth plain sight and pay no price? make no mistake, has implications beyond chemical war fair. if we won't enforce accountability in this heinous act what does it sap to other members who do this? the governments who would choose to build nuclear arms? the terrorists who would spread biological weapons? >> we should tell you,
know what we know, the question is what will we do let me empsoys. president obama and we in the united states we believe in the united nations and great respect for the brave inspector who endured regime gunfire and obstructions to their investigation. and as the security general moon said again and again, the un investigation will not affirm who used these chemical weapons. that is not the mandate of the un investigation. they will only a whether such weapons were used. by the definition of their own mandate, the un can't tell us anything that we haven't shared with you this afternoon and we don't already know and because of the guaranteed russian obstructionism of any action of the un security council, the un cannot dwaflinnize the world to act the way it should. let me be clear, we'll talk to the congress and talking to our allies and most importantly talking to the american people and president obama will insure that the united states of america makes our decisions on our own time lines and based on our value asks in our interest. now we know that after a decade of conflict, the am
. >> okay. kids, that's it. >>> president obama weighs what could be the most important and difficult decision of his presidency, whether to syria in response to a chemical weapons attack on the ground. this is special report. >>> good evening. i'm bret baier. the russians are warning us off. syria is promising chaos if we do it, but president obama tonight is said to be considering a military response to the latest chemical weapons attacks in syria. we have fox team coverage tonight. jennifer griffin is at the pentagon. but we begin with chief white house correspondent, ed henry on the politics of the syria crisis both here and overseas and where we are right now. good evening, ed. >> reporter: good evening. they believe that not only that chemical weapons were used but that they can pin it on the sire yan -- syrian government. secretary john kerry flatly declared president obama believes there must be accountability for the use of what he called the world's most heinous weapons. >> what we saw in syria last week should shock the conscience of the world. it defies any code of moralit
president obama has repeatedly denounced leaks, there was an extraordinary breach leaked today, putting the administration in a flattering light. u.s. officials told "the new york times" the white house decided to close the embassies after intercepting electronic communications between top al qaeda leaders. one u.s. official boasting this was significant, it was the big guys talking and talking about very specific timing for an attack or attacks. the leak about intercepting electronic communications is a bit of unfortunate timing for the administration, just as it has been taking heat over whether the nsa surveillance programs go too far, although the new information showing such close coordination between al qaeda's core leadership in pakistan and top affiliate in the arabian peninsula raises new questions about whether the terror group is really on the run. >> we have brought continually pressure to bear on both al qaeda core and al qaeda's affiliates, and we have for a number of years made clear our intention in terms of the threat presented by al qaeda has shifted in focus to some o
report" is next. >>> the obama administration consults with allies, finally agrees to talk to congressional leaders before pulling the trigger on syria. this is "special report." good evening, i'm bret baier. the only shots being fired continue to be of the rhetorical variety tonight as the anticipation grows of a u.s. military attack against syria. the u.s. is so far playing by the rules with other nations. however, the lawmakers here at home were until today definitely feeling left out. we have fox team coverage. melissa francis in new york has economic implications of a military move on syria. catherine herridge looks at how limited strikes worked before. james rosen at the state department looks at the possible blow back the action may carry for our allies and adversaries. we begin with chief white house correspondent ed henry with where things stand now. hello, ed. >> reporter: good evening, bret. fox learned tomorrow the white house will brief top house and senate members about key intelligence involving syria, and also possible strikes that are planned against syria.
and methods. >> he made plain that he and barack obama are certain, highly confident chemical weapons were used and used by the assad regime. the only question is can they persuade capitol hill and whether or not it is wise to do anything. >> will they wait for a chance to persuade capitol hill? capitol hill doesn't come back here until monday. >> indeed it doesn't. we know what the brits think, nato said no, the brits say no, the u.n. says they're going to wait, and secretary kerry said today that the u.n. -- they're determining whether there were chemical weapons used, not who used them, which is, of course, a significant issue. but anyway, james, thank you. >> thank you. >>> today, senator mike lee tweeting if the president cannot convince congress the syrian crisis threatens our national security, military intervention should be off the table. senator lee, nice to see you. >> thank you very much. >> what does the president have to do to convince you, sir, what's needed? >> well, he has to demonstrate to me and other members of congress that this is in the national security interest of
to the american people. >> the white house says it's considering whether president obama should meet one on one with president putin at the g 20 summit in russia this year. lawmakers from both political parties want even tougher action than that, more on that part of the story coming up. first to the fox report correspondent jonathan hunt in the "america's newsroom." what is next for edward snowden. >> now is he literally free to move about the country of russia as a refugee as russia has now officially labeled him. is he entitled to government housing, he might also get a hotel room and rent an apartment according to his lawyer who said today, quote: he now is one of the most sought after men in the world. the issue of security is very important to him: snowden himself in a statement thanking the russian government and said over the past 8 weeks we have seen the obama administration show no respect for international or domestic law but in the end, the law is winning. so, for now, harris, edward snowden's home is somewhat ironically a country not exactly known as a paragon of individual libert
altogether. obama administration is going to make sure that you have to include people with preexisting conditions, that guaranteed a gigantic increases. it's going fall off the tracks and crash. >> neil: julie, didn't have to be a rocket scientist or dr. kildare to figure out guaranteeing coverage for preexisting conditions or having your kids on the policy until they are 80 or something like that was going to result in higher premiums. so why this shock, this response? >> first, and foremost, to look at this, premiums have been going up at the slowest rate in the past decade. that is one. two, if you live in new york and california, premiums are set to fall by 50% in new york city next year after obamacare goes into effect. >> neil: you honestly believe that? >> wake up. read the "new york times". [ laughter ] >> neil: okay. it's the "new york times." >> cut in half by next year? >> there is no data for that. that is a claim by the obama administration. >> no, it's not. >> they claimed they were going to go down between 2010 and 2012. >> new york has all the conditions that obamacare
ahead. president obama has also been in close touch with teeders ---door key leader us of our allies. make no mistake, president obama believes there mississippi be accountability for those who would use the world's most heinous weapons against the world's most vulnerable people. nothing today is more serious and nothing is receiving more serious scrutiny. thank you. >> i'm trace gallagher in for shepard smith. just heard secretary of said john kerry giving his first accounts of the crisis in syria. the secretary delivers litany of what they believe is the proof that chemical weapons were used in syria. as important as what he laid out is what when he did not lay out, is a time line of dealing with syria, going after the regimes. what the did lay out there have to be consequences for any action, any chemical weapon used and said the president at some point in time will decide what to do but made it very, very clear the secretary of state believes there will be some type of action used against sirra, but keep in mind, we have u.n. inspectors on the ground, and seemed to indicate that
on "fox news sunday" the senator blaming president obama's foreign policy. >> the only american policy that i can think of that president obama is practicing is that, one, he's not bush. second, that the united states is withdrawing. we are withdrawing. and when you do that and when you say that, then things get a lot worse than they are. >> live with the news tonight in washington, steve, the embassy in yemen remains closed. why is that significant? >> well, we don't know if there's an actual threat there or what kind of a threat. we do know yemen's a stronghold of the al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. president obama says that branch of al qaeda continues to pose a serious threat to americans. but the president's critics say he's been understating the overall terrorist threat. >> you can't say on the one hand you have destroyed, quote, core al qaeda. by the way, that is semantic gymnastics which is remarkable. you can't say that and at the same time have to close embassies and consulates all over the middle east. look, al qaeda's on the rise. they have been on the rise. they have co
that world powers are ready to act to stop the blood shed. welcome to america live. president obama is keeping in close contact with our allies to determine the next step. the united nations acknowledged some coined of substance was used in last week's attack. the u.s. is prepared to act and moving four navy destroyers in the region. each is capable of caring 90 tomahawk missiles and they have nuclear powered submarines at its disposal. and un inspectors were able to get to the site for a second time. earlier this month they were shot at while they were trying to do their job. this comes as a suspected chemical weapon's attack killed hundreds of people. families were woiped out. in the midst of all of the sorrow, a story of hope. a father was reunited with a son he thought was killed in a recent attack. >> and only image the joy and no translation needed. the father was overcomed and nearly fainted and grabbing his son close and gassing in his eyes and this video reported in the damascus suburb. reporting live leland viter, it is good to so one positive moment in all of that chaos.
could strike again as president obama hold a meeting to weigh the options on a high-level strike in syria. we all await his decision as does the world. martha: we have new reports from the "wall street journal" that the white house is moving quickly on this because they have reason to believe syria is planning to launch another chemical attack in the country's largest city aleppo. wait wants to accomplish with action. molly henneberg is live at the white house leading our coverage. what is the white house saying? >> the u.s. has to get involved because the world community cannot leave a chemical attack or chemical attacks plural unanswered. but the white house says the goal is not to out of syrian president bashar al-asaad. even though the obama administration believes this is not the only chemical weapons attack by the regime this year. >> the options being considered by the president and his national security team are not around the question of whether chemical weapons were used in syria on a massive scale causing death and injury to innocents women and children. its many not w
. the obama administration had ordered those closures a week ago after intelligence officials intercepted conversations suggesting possible terror attacks on the facilities and other u.s. interests. yemen, which is highlighted in red here, still remains closed. steve centanni with the very latest live from washington. this is really serious news this week, steve. what's the status? >> reporter: yeah. that's right, jamie. you know that embassy in yes, ma'ayemenis closed because it le heart of the latest terrorist threat. as if to prove the point, terrorists were able to blow up a natural gas facility and kill four soldiers in a port city today about 2 hun miles south of the capital where you see the u.s. embassy here remains closed. now, here at home, lawmakers say the president's understating the danger from al-qaeda after the latest threat forced 22 embassies and consulates to close last week. >> the action of closing these embassies shows they're able to mount threats everywhere in the middle east against the united states of america, and they are playing in ways that can -- that are go
to you vote for president obama twice. >> i voted for the president twice. first, i didn't think the economic plans put forward by the campaign in 2008 or 2012 were suited for the times we're n so i had an economic reason to do that. secondly, i became a republican officially in 1995, after i decided not to run. and i have voted previously seven times for republican candidate. i have spoken at the 1996 convention, the 2000 convention. i worked for reagan and nixon as a white house fellow. i think credentials are fine. but in several years i have been troubled by the right shift of the republican party too far right. i have said this on a number of occasions. so in 2008 i found that as an american best choins choice was senator obama and then, now, president obama reelected. >> bill: here is what perplexes me. you're an analytical man. would you say is that correct? president obama's economic plan doesn't work among african americans when you voted for him, 12.7 unemployment. december, 2012 a mow after you voted for him again, 14% unemployment, up, okay? income, $32,000 compared t
ten years ago without great britain, without a resolution. obama is doing exactly what he ran for president against when he pledge never to do. it is like animal farm, repainting slogans on the farm and pretending they were always that way. >>anna: we're starting to see arguments on both side. charles krauthammer saying is it something to do with the president's ego saying don't cross the red line and once crossed not doing anything about it. and jack keane saying something should have been done earlier. >> no purpose whatsoever unless it is to assuage the guilty conscience of a president or vindicate the vanity of a president who has become the laughingstock around the world and whose word means nothing because last year he spoke about a red line and allowed all the red lines to be crossed without lifting a finger. maybe he feels compelled as a way to vindicate himself. you don't take a country into war as a way to vindicate your own standing. you do it to achieve strategic objectives on behalf of your country. if they're going to do a three-day strike with no intention of al
whether or not to defund obama care, even if it means shutting down significant portions of the government. good idea, bad idea? >> i think in general it's a good idea. our party is united as far as getting rid of obama care. we recognize the fact that more americans are losing their health care, costs are going up. the problems continue with the imation of obama. what i think we have a robust difference on is the tactic on how to make that happen. some people believe that we can defund it through the continuing resolution process. some people believe that you're not able to do that because of the way the funding is structured in terms of mandatory spending. i think if we can get resolution that it can be done i think most republicans agree that we should defund it. but there's a healthy debate as to what is the most effective way to do it. and that's where the breakdown occurs. everyone wants to get to the same place. it's just how to get there. >> dana, a lot of the tea party people have sort of drawn a line in the sand and said if they don't vote to defund and even tie it to whether it'
>> we are out of time. >> we begin today. president obama orders an attack on syria. the white house is holding a briefing at this hour as the war rhetoric heats up. our forces are ready for action. it could involve the c- launched cruise missiles on target and the u.s. had four navy destroyers in the area and each up to carrying 90 tomahawk missiles. it is near damascus. and the un citing security reasons. snipers attacked the convoy and left bullet holes in one of the vehicles and furnishly no one was hurt and all of this comes as we learn more about last wednesday's attack and the warning is the next week's video is tough to watch. thousands of sick and dying flooded the hospitals there and mouths were foaming and many of them could not breathe. doctors worked frantically trying to get patients antidote and within a few hours they ran out. doctors describe the scone it was like something out of an horror movie. the doting toll is at 355. leland viter is reporting out of the mideast bureau. >> the war drones are louder and louder. they believe that the syrian regime used chem
. >> as that dead line of october 1st. it is a starting date for when people sign up for obama care, it seems that americans are getting more nervous about health care. what does the latest polls show on that? clearly americans think in the majority, this law is going to make them poorer and make their health care worse and make the federal government deficit go up and make the health insurance premiums go up. if those who are not in favor of repealing or replacing the law, they think it will be bad for the economy. they can spend money on hiring navigators to seen people up in the law. the law is not working as promised it would. >> oh, boy, perhaps the president will get relaxation on martha's vineyard for the break he's on. thank you for breaking it down. >> disturbing new testimony in the fort hood shooting marshal case. forepzic pathologist taking the sign talking about what they saw four years ago. the army major nidal hasan opened fire on his comraides. >> the prosecution case is winding down. ten or so witnesses left to testify. it is all about the autopsies. horrific, horrific inform
